Whether it’s trekking in the Alps; conquering Mount Kilimanjaro; pounding the streets of London in a 10K, half marathon or marathon; skydiving; sledding in Lapland or cycling from London to Paris in time to watch the pros complete the Tour de France finale, join #TeamACF to choose your perfect fundraising challenge!

But why take on a sponsored fundraising challenge at all? Well, why not?! If you’re still pondering whether it’s right for you, here are a few things to consider:

  • Cross a must-do experience off your bucket list. One of the forty things to do before you’re forty perhaps? Or simply fulfilling a lifetime ambition.

  • Discover the world! As well as lots of wonderful UK-based challenges, we’re pleased to partner with Global Adventure Challenges to help you visit destinations a little further afield while maintaining high standards surrounding Responsible Tourism.

  • Tap into your sense of adventure. How many people can say they have climbed Kilimanjaro? Or cycled in its foothills? Or sledded with huskies in Lapland? You could!

  • Make new friends. You won’t be alone in any of our challenges. Take on the experience of a lifetime with others and share your unforgettable new experiences with them.

  • It’s the ultimate team-building experience. Encourage your colleagues and customers to get on board with your fundraising, or even join you on the challenge itself!

  • Make a difference. Remember that every 7p your fundraising page raises enables a child born into poverty in one of the Kenyan Porridge Clubs we support go to school, rather than having to work, scavenge or beg for food instead. Your challenge will raise an enormous amount of 7ps!

Have you ever dreamt of making an exhilarating freefall parachute jump? Or discovering the summit of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain? Or embarking on a cycling challenge of a lifetime? Or running a marathon? If so, we would love to hear from you.

We will provide you with support in setting up your online fundraising pages, printed sponsor forms (if you would like them), extra fundraising ideas to help you along the way, an African Children’s Fund t-shirt and a social media post or two along the way!
